Reflections on Money:

Give to get. The more love you give, the more love you get back.  When you hold back your loving, you get little loving back. The more money you give away, the more you will get back. When I was a rector I had a discretionary fund. The more money I gave away to help people the more money I got back to give away again.

We all will benefit if we all are willing to make other people rich. If we don’t want to make other people rich, we won’t prosper.

Prosperity Consciousness means we look at our money and we feel rich. No matter how much or how little we have we can see that we are prosperous.  Compare our money with the Appalachian poor, the Indian poor, and the Ugandan poor. We are all rich compared to the poor in other places.  We are grateful for what we have been given.

It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Joseph Heller, author of Catch 22 and other novels was at a party of a fabulously rich hedge fund entrepreneur. Another guest said to him, “How does it make you feel that this guy makes in one day more than you have made from the sale of all your books?”

Heller said, “I have one thing that our host does not have.”

What is that”?

Heller replied. “Enough.”
